I use gitolite, what should I do to help?

I spent some time looking at gitolite and the service. As I understand
it, with the exception of svnserve, it searches $PATH for a number of
different binaries, including git-annex. I believe that this would only
work if git-annex (and potentially other packages) are installed

In addition, git (not git-minimal) and openssh are propagated inputs AND
wrapped. I haven't tested to see if wrapping only is enough.

I think the best choice is to:
A: Replace /usr/bin/svnserve with svnserve so it will just search $PATH,
like it does with the other helpers.
B: Adjust the service so that it automatically creates a variant (or
just a wrapped version) of the package which is wrapped with a list of
additional packages so that they can be in gitolite's path. If I were
deploying this to an arm device I wouldn't want it wrapped with
git-annex since it doesn't build, but would definitely want it for an
x86_64 machine.

I suppose we should try to find someone who is using the gitolite
service and see if they can be our test subject for wrapping the package
with optional addons.

Any volunteer ? For testing Gitolite and then close this very old bug
from 5 years, 15 weeks, 6 days ago.
